Ivan Otero Outworked, Outslugged Anderson To Win

By Peter Lim

Lightweight Ivan Otero (11-2, 2 KOs) outworked and outslugged Aaron Anderson (2-21-1, 1 KO) en route to lopsided six round unanimous decision at the Bayou City Events Center in Houston. Dictating the tempo from the outset, Otero battered Anderson with punches to the upstairs and down throughout but simply could not stop his survival-oriented opponent. Anderson seemed more intent on clowning around and antagonizing the crowd than winning the fight, but his antics did annoy Otero enough to throw him a tad off his game plan. Anderson found moderate success with counter punches but they had little effect on Otero, who had previously outpointed Anderson over four rounds in November.
The card was staged by Savarese Boxing Promotions.
Crowd favorite Isaac Teran suffered the first loss of his career via first round TKO to Terrel Jamal Woods in a heavyweight bout. Teran (2-1, 2 KOs) came out throwing decapitating bombs, as he always does, with his chin invitingly elevated and exposed. But unlike Teran's previous two victims, neither of whom had won a fight, Woods (3-7, 3 KOs) was first to connect. Punching in between Teran's reckless swings, Woods (3-7, 3 KOs) dropped Teran to his knees with a short right. Teran beat the count and tried to punch his way back into the fight but Woods trapped him against the ropes and dropped him face first with two more rights. Teran beat the count but referee Sam Garza waved the fight over at the 1:24 mark.
Heavyweight Darlington Agha remained undefeated at 8-0, 6 KOs after outpointing Andrew Greely (14-42-3, 8 KOs) over six rounds. Agha stopped Greely's brother Anthony in two rounds last month.
Welterweight Felipe Reyes (4-0, 3 KOs) bombarded Anthony Woods (0-4) with body shots before stopping him with a flurry against the ropes in the second round.
Junior middleweight Jonathan Cashmere (2-0, 2 KOs) dropped Willie Miller (0-4) with a double right for a second-round TKO.
Female lightweight Jennifer Scott (3-4, 2 KOs) won a four-round unanimous decision over Angel Ford (0-2) in a spirited and crowd-pleasing brawl.
Junior featherweight Eric Lainez made a successful pro debut by outpointing Andy Sandoval (0-1-1) over four rounds in a phone booth war.
